Company description
Cardiac scoring is a specialized scan that can determine your likelihood of developing heart disease. Scoring checks for calcium buildup in your blood vessels, which can lead to hardening of the arteries.

Depending on the type of scan you are having and the preparation needed your exam can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour. Some factors attributing to the time needed include: starting an IV for IV contrast administration, oral contrast administration, diagnosis, patient’s ability to hold still, delays needed for normal body processing and uptake of the IV contrast. During the scan you will lay on a padded table, which will be raised then moved in and out of a doughnut-shaped machine. You will lie on your back, side or stomach depending on what area you are having scanned. The table will move in and out of the machine several times quickly, this is used to get a basic image for positioning slices.
Among the most advanced in the state, our imaging services include CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, mammography, bone densitometry, ultrasound and general X-ray. Add to that our computerized radiography, digital radiography, and PACS and it's easy to see that Norman Regional Hospital is the place to be for a full complement of state-of-the-art imaging services.
PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is a diagnostic imaging procedure that detects disease. PET scans produce images that can help to identify many forms of cancer, damaged heart tissue, and brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and epilepsy. A PET scan is very different from an ultrasound, X-ray, MRI, or CT. These tests detect changes in the body structure or anatomy; whereas, a PET scan gives information about the body’s physiology. A PET scan detects abnormalities in cellular activity and can, in many cases, identify diseases earlier and more specifically than other imaging techniques.
